The Spell of Islam: Difficult to Break

“The Quran is fake and your prophet remained in bed for one month before his death because he had worms in his ears and mouth. He married Khadija just for money and after looting her kicked her out of the house.”

At least this is what a Pakistan policeman alleges that Asia Bibi said to Muslims in Pakistan. Bibi was arrested and tried for blasphemy (you know, that victim-less crime?) then sentenced to die for her words. Bibi is a Christian mother of five and claims the charges against her are false, and that she is being persecuted for her own superstition in a nation with a majority that follow cults of Islam.

Regardless, only the most backward of societies -the most primitive of this world- would still have the barbaric and mindless law which allows a death sentence for blasphemy. As a government, Pakistan’s is the laughing stock of the world. It’s people are pitiful and backward not stand up for common sense and human rights above any superstition.

And they’re not alone. In Palestine, a once anonymous blogger was arrested in a sting operation for blaspheming Allah and his silly “prophet” Muhammad. He faces life in prison for his “crime” and one superstitious resident of his town (Qalqiliya, Palestine) said he “should be burned to death.”

Jesus fucking christ on a stick. Burned to death! For talking shit about a supernatural being that clearly either doesn’t exist or doesn’t care since he let the man speak his mind.

Blasphemy laws and the sentences carried out under them are evidence that man’s gods are invented. If a god truly is all-powerful, then why would someone criticizing it in public be any sort of threat?  If the god is real, let the god strike the “blasphemer” down. This is a way for religious hierarchy to police it’s followers. “At its peak, Husayin’s Arabic-language blog had more than 70,000 visitors, overwhelmingly from Arab countries.” That’s a lot of potential apostates. For those in power in Islam to remain in power, they have to keep the ignorant in line.

It just doesn’t do for people to start to question or think.
